Changes to Private Travel Insurance for Curtin approved travel

News story

In response to traveller feedback, Curtin will be changing the current allowance for Private Travel Insurance, which is taken in conjunction with Curtin approved travel.

For all Curtin approved travel booked after the 9 July 2018, the Private Travel Insurance allowance will cover a maximum of two (2) days of incidental private travel, when taken in conjunction with Curtin approved travel.

If your private travel exceeds the two day allowance, it is your responsibility to source and fund any personal insurance you may need.

To assist with this, Curtin maintains a private travel insurance offering available to Curtin Students with Chubb Insurance, which includes a 10% discount from the standard rates. This provides Private Travel Insurance, for annual multi-trip or single trips, and will cover trips that do not originate in Australia, but which are attached to Curtin approved travel.

Access this offering through the Chubb Private Travel Insurance portal.

Note: There is no obligation on Curtin Students to use this offering, however should you choose to do so, please note that terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply to each type of cover. You must decide whether or not it is appropriate, in light of your own circumstances, and ensure you obtain and consider the Product Disclosure Statement for the policy before you make any decision to purchase it.
